Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop with a2z Scrapbooking!


Oh boy, oh boy!  It's here!!  The Coffee Blog Hop is my most FAVORITE hop and I look forward to each one!!!  It's so fun to see everyone's creations and of course the chance for prizes is too good to pass up!

Today I'm with the gals over at a2z Scrapbooking sharing our favorite Hero Arts products with the summer theme.

Here's my card...


I used the fun Hero Arts Paper Layering Palm Tree Pair fancy die and colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  I used a Mini Ink blending tool to create the sun with Hero Arts Bold Ink in Dandelion and then smudged some Pool ink  on the edges.  For the "sand" I used some kraft paper torn and inked up the edges with the ombre ink Sand to Chocolate Brown.  My coffee cups are from Kelly's Portland and colored with bright colors for a summer feel.  (side note the hubby was not a fan...lol).  Finally for the sentiment (not to take away from the scene) is from an older Hero Arts Everyday Sayings.



For the supplies I've used on my card and more fun Hero Arts supplies head on over to a2z Scrapbooking and use code NICKI15 for 15% off $25 or more purchase.  Proceeds from the store helps the Behcets and Celiac communities. Big mahalo for stopping by!
